  • A very loyal soldier who was treated very shabbily, eventually rehabilitated and brought back home. A nice statue that commemorates his life and this important chapter of French history.  more »
  • This bronze statue, which was commissioned by Jack Lang, then culture Minister in 1985, known good avatars. Its possible successive locations, have been the subject of refusals of the authorities, including political and military! It's only June 9, 1988, it is installed at the Tuileries garden near the terrace of the edge water, for its inauguration. It was Jacques Chirac who makes move to where it is today, for the centenary of the arrest of Dreyfus. That's why this statue was compared at the time "the wandering Jew". Captain Dreyfus, who was Jewish, was charged to wrong by the army, which produced fake documents accusing. It will be put to the penal colony of French Guiana on the island to hell in 1895, after have been degraded. He will be rehabilitated in 1906. The statue is located so place Pierre Lafue, at the intersection of Boulevard Raspail and rue Notre Dame des Champs. In 2006, Jack Lang and the Mayor of Paris, wish she was placed in the courtyard of the military school, but here again "One Commander in Chief" is opposed. The old demons have thick skin! This statue represents Alfred Dreyfus in the foot holding a sword broke in front of his face and is the work of 'Tim' alias Louis Mitelberg. The plate shows a sentence of Dreyfus "If you want to live, do I make my honor". For now, it's not obvious to everyone, after more than a century. The appearance of the statue is rather rude as if it were a draft badly, it's one style like any other! Thanks to "Louis561" Argentine tourist, who proposed the creation of this page in 2016.
